    Google Trusted Stores
    Was just curious how every one feels about the google trusted store program and if you think it would help an online store in anyway?

    Fear marketing.

    Merchants fear if they don't do everything the Google says or offers they will somehow be penalized.

    At some point, they probably will...

    Not in fear of anything.. Just was curious if it was worth implementing or not. Seems like it's a way for a store to use the google branding but allows Google to try to take over the sale by pushing the purchaser though Google merchant account.

    You may have misunderstood me.

    Fear Marketing is one of THE strongest marketing methods out there.

    Look at insurance ads
    Look at tire ads
    Look at clothing ads
    Look at car ads
    Look at religion

    McAfee and other virus software companies do the same thing - fear marketing. Website owners 'fear' if they don't get that 'seal of approval': "If I don't..."

    The 'real' fear is a reality - and that is not if, but when, will the Google get hacked and how long it will take to get that 'seal of approval' off your site and in the SERPs before damage to your site's reputation is done.

    Ask PayPal
    Ask eBay

    Ask yourself, does anyone really trust the Google?
